    Anybody hold garage parties in there garage that also duels as a workshop? Do you serve food in there? I'm not sure this is the best place for a party but I am too scared someone will spill red wine on my brand new white carpet!

    Garages make great party areas. Epoxy floors make the clean up so easy! Just get out the garden hose and squeege. I have a bar with table and chairs in mine. Hoping to add some storage and tv soon.

    garage party? Every weekend. On Friday nights, it's high School football on the radio, Saturdays The Ohio State Buckeyes and Sunday's the Bengals. Plenty of beverages and usually food of all kinds. Even thinking about putting in a brass pole for when football is over

    Garages are great for that in the winter, but I'm tired of the Kansas City area winter. I'd rather be out on the deck or the dock, with WARMER WEATHER!

    I'm going to have a party in my garage and I don't really know when to start.
    I know the date, but I'm just not sure what to put in the garage. Should I have a theme?

    Depends what the party is for. I've always like parties where they bring you a garage gift! (wrench, hammer, car polish, Armor-All, tire gauge, etc.)

    I just had my son's graduation reception in the garage. parked all the cars outside cleaned the place up good. it was perfect. plenty of room no worry if someone spills on the floor and since my shop is a long way from the house and it has its own bathroom no-one ever needs to go into the house.

    Definitely depends on what state you live in.. In MN, it is so unbearable in the winter!

    However, during the summer I love to have garage parties. They're definitely less formal than serving red wine, but whatever works! Our flooring (epoxy) definitely makes it a lot cozier. We open up our garage and backyard. It's pretty great.

    here is a picture of the decorating for my son's graduation. we used the lift as a table. put a piece of plywood and 2x4 bracing. covered with a table cloth. it worked great.

    Loved the way you converted your Lift to a table. Way to go!
